Caption transcript for Roadmap to Armageddon: “Battle of Gog and Magog” (3/10)

  • 00:01 ♪♪♪ Caleb Colson: You guys are gonna
  • 00:10 learn more about Gog, this ruler, this principality of the north, and his plans to
  • 00:14 take over Israel.
  • 00:15 Joshua Colson: Persia or Iran has been trying to acquire
  • 00:17 nuclear weapons for some time.
  • 00:19 They've been threatening to wipe Israel off the face of the
  • 00:20 planet for years now.
  • 00:22 male announcer: God is trying to prove himself strong to the
  • 00:25 Jewish people, that all this conflict is really for one
  • 00:28 singular purpose, so that they may know that I am the Lord.
  • 00:40 David Hart: We are so glad you've joined us today.
  • 00:42 We're at the third stop, actually heading to the third
  • 00:45 stop of this roadmap.
  • 00:46 What's going on today, guys?
  • 00:47 Joshua: The third stop is the battle of Gog and Magog, and we
  • 00:51 are looking at prophecy in a chronological order.
  • 00:54 If you've ever been unnerved, ever been confused by it, we are
  • 00:56 putting it step by step so you'll get it all the way to the
  • 00:59 end of time in the battle of Armageddon.
  • 01:01 Caleb: That's right, this is a topic of much discussion today,
  • 01:04 because Bible readers look at the news headlines and they see
  • 01:06 wars in these nations coming into alignment, and everybody is
  • 01:09 talking about Psalm 83, Gog and Magog, the Ezekiel 38 and 39
  • 01:13 war, and they get confused because some people believe this
  • 01:16 is the same battle as Armageddon or it occurs at the end of a
  • 01:20 millennial reign, and we want to clear up that confusion today.
  • 01:23 Kirsten Hart: Which you'll do today, we appreciate that.
  • 01:25 David: I believe right now you're heading to Tiberias,
  • 01:27 is that right?
  • 01:29 Caleb: We start off in Tiberius and we're going to
  • 01:30 head north to the border of Syria.
  • 01:31 David: Right, let's go there now.
  • 01:33 ♪♪♪
  • 01:42 Joshua: You know what I don't get?
  • 01:43 I get the rapture's gonna happen, millions of people are
  • 01:46 gonna disappear, but how does that equal death, destruction,
  • 01:49 Gog, Magog, worshiping aliens, people being crazy?
  • 01:53 Caleb: The entire landscape of the world is gonna change, and
  • 01:57 there's gonna be a void to fill, and Satan's gonna take an
  • 01:59 opportunity to fill that void, either placing blame for the
  • 02:04 disappearances or taking credit for it.
  • 02:06 Joshua: So, all of a sudden we're gonna start worshiping
  • 02:08 aliens and Kardashians, and Putin's gonna be in charge
  • 02:10 of Magog?
  • 02:11 Caleb: Yeah, he did it.
  • 02:13 Less than five minutes into the show, he mentions Putin, aliens,
  • 02:17 and Kardashians all in one sentence.
  • 02:20 I mean, that's gotta offend at least 65% of the
  • 02:22 world's population.
  • 02:24 Caleb: Honestly, Josh, I wouldn't doubt anything at
  • 02:26 this point.
  • 02:27 It's possible that demonic entities masquerading as aliens
  • 02:30 or progenitors will take credit for the disappearances, and with
  • 02:34 Christianity gone, a one-world religion to these demons may
  • 02:37 fill that void.
  • 02:39 I mean, even today, government powers are declassifying
  • 02:42 UFO encounters.
  • 02:43 I mean, Satan will do anything when he masquerades as an angel
  • 02:46 of light.
  • 02:48 Joshua: I have no idea what a progenitor is,
  • 02:49 but I think Jeff is calling.
  • 02:50 Jeff, Jeff, Jeff.
  • 02:52 Dr. Jeffrey Seif: It is a tough assignment today, gentlemen.
  • 02:56 It was written throughout the ages on these pages
  • 03:00 many years ago.
  • 03:01 People talk about spiritual warfare, well, show us what
  • 03:04 happens when the spiritual gets material.
  • 03:08 We see in Revelation when these spiritual forces take on bodies
  • 03:12 and nations collide.
  • 03:14 They go after the Hebrews.
  • 03:16 It's a tough story to tell.
  • 03:18 Go get 'em, gentlemen.
  • 03:19 Caleb: You know, Jeff is right.
  • 03:21 The Gog and Magog conflict is spiritual just as much as it
  • 03:24 is physical.
  • 03:25 We gotta learn more about Gog, this ruler, this principality of
  • 03:29 the north, and his plans to take over Israel.
  • 03:32 Joshua: Well, let's go.
  • 03:34 Come on, brother.
  • 03:35 We gotta stop Gog, and Magog, and Kim, and Jenner, and all
  • 03:40 the Dashians.
  • 03:43 Joshua: Whoa, whoa, whoa, hold on, time out, time out,
  • 03:45 wardrobe change.
  • 03:46 We get it, those are not color-changing shirts.
  • 03:48 Although if we did, you could get them for the donation price
  • 03:50 of--no, here's the deal, 18 episodes, two series shot in ten
  • 03:54 days that are gonna air over the course of half a year.
  • 03:56 Sometimes they told us to put on the wrong shirts.
  • 04:00 It wasn't my fault.
  • 04:02 ♪♪♪
  • 04:18 Joshua: Guys, before we discuss the details of the battle of Gog
  • 04:20 and Magog, let's go ahead and address the elephant in
  • 04:23 the jeep.
  • 04:24 The timing, everybody gets in such a hissy fit about
  • 04:27 the timing.
  • 04:28 Is it in the middle of the tribulation?
  • 04:30 Is it the end of the tribulation?
  • 04:31 There's this verse in Revelation, here's the verse.
  • 04:32 Revelation 27 and 8, it says, "Now when the thousand years
  • 04:36 have expired, Satan will be released from his prison and
  • 04:39 will go out and deceive the nations which are in the four
  • 04:42 corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together
  • 04:45 in battle, whose number is of the sand of the sea."
  • 04:48 Caleb: Guys, the top reasons why this battle, which we refer to
  • 04:53 as the final battle, is not the same as Gog and Magog, first of
  • 04:57 all, you can read the term Gog and Magog many places in the
  • 04:59 Bible, and just like Jerusalem, it doesn't mean it's always
  • 05:02 referring to the same situation or thing.
  • 05:04 Number one, the participants in that final battle is the entire
  • 05:07 world, whereas Gog and Magog is more localized contenders,
  • 05:11 you know.
  • 05:12 Second, Gog's motivation is quite different.
  • 05:16 You know, it's pretty much greed, whereas Satan's
  • 05:18 motivation is rebellion against Yeshua.
  • 05:21 He wants to rule, he wants the throne.
  • 05:23 But third, I say the conclusions are vastly different, Josh.
  • 05:26 You know, the final battle ends as God shoots out fire from the
  • 05:31 throne, incinerates the entire army and the whole earth, as 2
  • 05:36 Peter 3:6-7 states, I mean, the whole earth is destroyed
  • 05:39 by fire.
  • 05:40 But the conclusion of Gog and Magog is quite different.
  • 05:43 You get sulfur, and hailstones, and great earthquakes, "Every
  • 05:46 man's sword against his brother," and the earth
  • 05:49 survives though.
  • 05:51 Ezekiel 39:9 says we have seven years to burn the weapons of war
  • 05:57 after the conclusion of the battle, and Ezekiel 39:12-16
  • 06:01 says it takes seven months to mark out the dead bodies in the
  • 06:05 valley of Hamon-gog.
  • 06:07 So, this is where I kind of get that conclusion that Gog and
  • 06:11 Magog cannot occur in the middle of the tribulation, because you
  • 06:14 need those seven years, and Messiah always rejuvenates the
  • 06:18 world after the end of the tribulation.
  • 06:20 At the end of a millennial reign, the whole world ends, so
  • 06:23 it can't be the end of the millennial reign, but it's not
  • 06:26 by accident that it's seven years to burn the weapons
  • 06:30 of war, and it's a seven year tribulation.
  • 06:32 Thus, I believe it occurs before the tribulation.
  • 06:36 Joshua: That makes sense to me, brother.
  • 06:38 Here we are.
  • 06:41 male announcer: Ezekiel 38:1-6, "Now the word of the Lord came
  • 06:45 to me saying, 'Son of man, set your face against Gog, of the
  • 06:49 land of Magog, and say, 'Thus says the Lord God, 'Behold, I am
  • 06:55 against you, O Gog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal.
  • 07:00 I will turn you around and put hooks in your jaws and lead you
  • 07:03 out with all of your armies, horses, and horsemen, all
  • 07:07 splendidly clothed, a great company with bucklers and
  • 07:10 shields, all of them handling swords.
  • 07:12 Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya are with them, all of them with
  • 07:16 shield and helmet, Gomer and all its troops, the house of
  • 07:21 Togarmah from the far north, all its troops, many people are
  • 07:25 with you.'"
  • 07:29 Joshua: Here we are in the Golan Heights, a point of contention
  • 07:33 in times past.
  • 07:34 We know that Syria attacked during the Yom Kippur War in
  • 07:38 1973 with a coalition.
  • 07:42 Interestingly enough, this prince Gog, this spiritual
  • 07:45 principality, like the Prince of Persia, will attack with the
  • 07:49 nations, a coalition against Israel.
  • 07:52 Caleb: That's true, in that Scripture that we just read,
  • 07:54 those nations are unknown to today, but if you take their
  • 07:57 modern day equivalent, you get Russia, you get Iran, you get
  • 08:01 Turkey, you get Tunisia, you get Morocco, you get Libya, you get
  • 08:06 all the Stans, Uzbekistan, Tunekistan, I can't even say all
  • 08:10 the Stans.
  • 08:12 Joshua: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, yeah, guys, none of
  • 08:16 those Stans are real, FYI.
  • 08:19 Caleb: But what matters is these are the nations that immediately
  • 08:23 surround the Psalm 83 coalition nations, and since those nations
  • 08:26 are subdued, they can very easily pass through on their way
  • 08:30 to invade Israel.
  • 08:32 Joshua: It was bad.
  • 08:33 Caleb: Very bad.
  • 08:35 male announcer: Ezekiel 38:8-9 says, "In the latter years you
  • 08:39 will come into the land of those brought back from the sword and
  • 08:42 gathered from many people on the mountains of Israel which had
  • 08:45 long been desolate.
  • 08:46 They were brought out of nations, and now all of them
  • 08:49 dwell safely.
  • 08:50 You will ascend, coming like a storm, covering the land like
  • 08:53 a cloud.
  • 08:54 You and all your troops and many peoples with you."
  • 08:59 Caleb: Woah, look at that view, I think I can see Damascus
  • 09:02 from here.
  • 09:03 I think I see Mount Everest from here.
  • 09:09 Guys, Russia has been carving a clear path to Israel for the
  • 09:15 last few decades, and to the Black Sea.
  • 09:17 Necessary prophetic establishment to get to Israel
  • 09:20 for these wars.
  • 09:21 You know, back in 2008, they had a hostile takeover of Georgia,
  • 09:25 in 2014, Crimea, and then in 2022, you all know about that
  • 09:31 Ukraine conflict that's currently going on, hopefully
  • 09:34 it'll end soon, but all of this is so they can get through Syria
  • 09:38 to reach the mountains of Israel.
  • 09:39 We believe Damascus is gonna be wiped out before that because of
  • 09:42 Isaiah chapter 17, in a single night, possibly
  • 09:45 nuclear-warhead style.
  • 09:47 Joshua: We're taken out.
  • 09:49 Caleb: From this vantage point, we'd have the best view of
  • 09:52 a mushroom cloud when Damascus gets hit.
  • 09:56 I wonder about the fallout.
  • 10:00 Joshua: You're probably asking yourself why is Gog marching in
  • 10:03 on foot instead of just launching nukes?
  • 10:06 Ask yourself, they probably just saw Damascus destroyed when
  • 10:09 Israel had to flex its muscle with the Samson option, and
  • 10:12 literally blow them up in one night, so I ask you, what would
  • 10:15 you do at that point?
  • 10:16 Caleb: I wouldn't, you know, Syria is right there, guys, and
  • 10:20 Damascus, 40 miles from here.
  • 10:22 This, according to Scriptures, is where all takes place.
  • 10:25 This is where the battleground is for Gog and Magog.
  • 10:30 Caleb: Now, Josh, I remember you critiquing my love for dinosaurs
  • 10:34 saying that there were no Jewish dinosaurs.
  • 10:36 Joshua: And yeah, it is nerds, there were no Jewish dinosaurs
  • 10:39 in the Bible.
  • 10:40 I don't even know why we're doing a show on this.
  • 10:42 Caleb: Here we are in Israel on Mount Bental, and there's
  • 10:44 a dinosaur.
  • 10:45 Joshua: Clearly a Jewish iguana, it is not a Jewish dinosaur.
  • 10:49 That artist had poor scale.
  • 10:51 Caleb: Totally dinosaurs.
  • 10:53 Joshua: They meant for it to be three feet tall, dang it.
  • 10:57 Joshua: Okay, sure, fine, yeah, I get it, dinosaurs in Israel.
  • 11:00 Let me ask you this, if there are, then why is the IDF not
  • 11:03 riding T-Rexes into battle?
  • 11:10 male announcer: Ezekiel 38:10-12, "Thus says the Lord
  • 11:13 God, 'On that day it shall come to pass that thoughts will arise
  • 11:17 in your mind, and you will make an evil plan.
  • 11:21 You will say, 'I will go up against a land of
  • 11:23 unwalled villages.
  • 11:25 I will go to a peaceful people who dwell safely to take plunder
  • 11:28 and to take booty, to stretch out your hand against the waste
  • 11:32 places that are again inhabited and against a people gathered
  • 11:36 from the nations who have acquired livestock and goods,
  • 11:40 who dwell in the midst of the land.'"
  • 11:43 Caleb: What is prince Gog's motivation in all this?
  • 11:46 We mentioned greed earlier.
  • 11:48 He sees this prosperous nation, Israel, recovered from war,
  • 11:52 a land of unwalled villages.
  • 11:54 People say that can't happen in Israel today because they have a
  • 11:56 wall separating them from the Gaza Strip on the West Bank, but
  • 11:59 that is a separation boundary of nations and territories, so it
  • 12:02 doesn't have to be a prerequisite for Gog to happen
  • 12:05 right now.
  • 12:07 Joshua: Noting Israel has something that prince Gog wants,
  • 12:10 and as everything starts to align, one of the possibilities
  • 12:13 is that it may be oil.
  • 12:14 Now, Deuteronomy 33:24 says, "Asher is most blessed of sons.
  • 12:19 Let him be favored by his brothers, and let him dip his
  • 12:21 foot in oil."
  • 12:23 Now, some people have taken this to mean that Israel is going to
  • 12:25 strike oil soon in a big way, creating wealth and prosperity
  • 12:28 that makes them a key player on the world stage.
  • 12:32 Caleb: Another option is natural gas.
  • 12:34 Revealed during the Russian-Ukraine conflict is that
  • 12:37 Russia holds a monopoly in supplying the European Union
  • 12:40 with 40% of their natural gas, 30% of their oil, they have
  • 12:44 pipelines that run through Belarus and Ukraine that supply
  • 12:47 most of northern Europe, and Europe is currently going
  • 12:50 through an energy crisis with their refusal to mine fossil
  • 12:53 fuels in order to have this perfect environmentalism utopia.
  • 12:57 But the interesting thing is currently Russia is planning the
  • 13:01 Tesla pipeline that they are in cahoots with Turkey, another
  • 13:06 player, to create a pipeline that then goes to Greece and
  • 13:09 hold the monopoly on all southern Europe.
  • 13:11 But then something big happened, Israel struck natural gas on the
  • 13:16 Mediterranean coast, and they have been very generous with
  • 13:19 wanting to supply that natural gas to people all around them.
  • 13:22 Joshua: This is the huge difference here, because Israel
  • 13:24 immediately begins the plans for the EastMed Pipeline, where
  • 13:27 they're going to take natural gas from Israel, to Cyprus, to
  • 13:30 Greece, providing it for all of Europe by 2025.
  • 13:33 Well, what does this do?
  • 13:34 It spawns immediate retaliation by Russia and its cohort,
  • 13:37 Turkey, and in fact, on one occasion, Turkey sends out ships
  • 13:40 to create a blockade to try to stop this from happening.
  • 13:42 A little different, everybody else over here trying to charge,
  • 13:45 Israel is trying to help the world.
  • 13:47 Caleb: Because Russia deems money, power, resources as the
  • 13:50 most important thing, and they'll do anything to control
  • 13:53 monopoly on energy resources.
  • 13:55 Joshua: Know that they play to win over there in Russia.
  • 13:58 Joshua: Don't worry, Russia never have very small men,
  • 14:01 all very strong, very big man, lots of riding T-rex rex.
  • 14:05 We are top number one.
  • 14:06 That's just the thing they do.
  • 14:09 male announcer: Ezekiel 38:16, "You will come up against my
  • 14:13 people, Israel, like a cloud to cover the land.
  • 14:16 It will be in the latter days that I will bring you against my
  • 14:18 land, so that the nations may know me when I am hallowed in
  • 14:22 you, O Gog, before their eyes."
  • 14:25 Joshua: Indeed, war is looming on the world stage.
  • 14:28 Turkey is about to make their presence known in a big way.
  • 14:30 We're going to talk about that next week.
  • 14:32 Persia, or Iran, has been trying to acquire nuclear weapons
  • 14:35 for some time.
  • 14:36 They've been threatening to wipe Israel off the face of the
  • 14:38 planet for years now.
  • 14:40 They use their vassals, Syria, Lebanon, Hamas, even today to
  • 14:43 attack Israel.
  • 14:44 Caleb: That's right, guys, and Russia is always trying to show
  • 14:46 their strength and dominance.
  • 14:49 Joshua: That's funny, yeah, I guess Ivan Drago was really
  • 14:52 small in Rocky IV, always the display of strength on the
  • 14:56 inside, Russia.
  • 14:58 Freudian's best friend, literally, that's why Sigmund
  • 15:01 Freud was so famous, Russians.
  • 15:04 Caleb: It is very interesting in Ezekiel 38:4, it says that Gog
  • 15:08 is kind of drug into the conflict with a hook in his
  • 15:11 mouth, and it's not that he doesn't want the power and
  • 15:14 dominance, it's not ideological for him.
  • 15:16 You know that currently for Islam, they want to dominate,
  • 15:19 they want to control.
  • 15:21 It's all about the religion, but not for Gog, he wants
  • 15:23 the resources.
  • 15:24 And it's interesting that I would say right now it says 12%
  • 15:29 of the Russian population adheres to Islam, but 10% is in
  • 15:34 the military, so that may be kind of in effect at pulling Gog
  • 15:37 along to get into this conflict.
  • 15:39 Joshua: But at that point, it's going to be God, not the IDF,
  • 15:43 that saves the day.
  • 15:44 He's going to come in with an earthquake, and hailstones, and
  • 15:48 brimstone, and everything, flooding rain, all of the things
  • 15:53 to take care of the situation.
  • 15:55 We read here in Ezekiel 39:2, "And I will turn thee back, and
  • 15:59 leave, but the sixth part of thee."
  • 16:01 Only one-sixth of the enemy is gonna survive.
  • 16:04 God sends down judgment of the land of Gog and Magog, Russia.
  • 16:08 Ezekiel 39:6 says, "And I will send down fire on Magog and
  • 16:11 those who live in the security in the coastlands.
  • 16:14 Then they shall know that I am Lord."
  • 16:16 Caleb: Wow, that's a big burn and destruction, but all this
  • 16:20 conflict is really for one singular purpose, so that they
  • 16:24 may know that I am the Lord.
  • 16:26 God is trying to prove himself strong to the Jewish people, and
  • 16:30 he uses this conflict as a catalyst for a national revival
  • 16:35 of all the people of Israel to believe on the God of Abraham,
  • 16:38 Isaac, and Jacob.
  • 16:42 male announcer: Ezekiel 39:21-22, "I will set my glory
  • 16:46 among the nations.
  • 16:47 All the nations shall see my judgment which I have executed,
  • 16:51 and my hand which I have laid on them.
  • 16:53 So the house of Israel shall know that I am the Lord their
  • 16:57 God from that day forward."
  • 17:02 Joshua: "From that day forward."
  • 17:04 What does that mean?
  • 17:05 What is it gonna take today to unite the Jewish people under
  • 17:09 one religion?
  • 17:10 For them to believe in the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob?
  • 17:13 Now, you may think that all Jewish people believe in Elohim,
  • 17:16 but they don't.
  • 17:17 You have secular Jews, Atheist Jews, Buddhist Jews, Hinjews,
  • 17:20 those are Hindus that believe.
  • 17:23 Well, here's the deal, the catalyst for the 12 tribes
  • 17:26 returning was the holocaust, and the supernatural intervention of
  • 17:30 Gog and Magog is gonna be the catalysts that bring all Jews
  • 17:34 believing in one God and show the people of this world that
  • 17:37 God backs his people of Israel.
  • 17:40 Brother, you in there?
  • 17:43 Caleb: It's totally cool in there, but you're absolutely
  • 17:45 right, Josh.
  • 17:47 It's absolutely necessary for the national revival of Judaism
  • 17:50 in order to bring about the construction of a third temple.
  • 17:54 You know, these nations that are crippled will have to sign a
  • 17:57 peace treaty between Israel which will begin construction of
  • 18:00 a third temple, and guess who the broker is gonna be of this
  • 18:03 peace treaty?
  • 18:05 None other than the beast himself, aka, the Antichrist.
  • 18:08 I know last week, guys, we spoke about the seven feasts, and the
  • 18:12 prophetic fulfillment, and how this relates to the end times.
  • 18:15 We know that the Feast of Trumpets is fulfilled with the
  • 18:18 rapture, Rosh Hashanah, and Rosh Hashanah is a hard time for the
  • 18:22 Jewish people.
  • 18:23 It's a day that they afflict their souls, they mourn, they
  • 18:27 try to get God to get their names written in the Book of
  • 18:29 Life for another year, and from Rosh Hashanah to Yom Kippur is
  • 18:33 ten days.
  • 18:34 Those are called the ten days of awe, and I believe that the
  • 18:38 battle of Gog and Magog occurs during these ten days of awe,
  • 18:41 and the conclusion is Yom Kippur.
  • 18:45 Thus, the tribulation must begin, Josh, on Yom Kippur,
  • 18:49 and end on Yom Kippur.

  • 19:13 Caleb: You may ask why doesn't America come to Israel's aid
  • 19:16 during the battle of Gog and Magog?
  • 19:18 You know, it's already written in Scripture whether we are
  • 19:20 involved in that battle or not, and we absolutely aren't.
  • 19:24 Well, why is that?
  • 19:25 You know, I believe America is crippled at this point in
  • 19:27 history, whether by the rapture or an assault from, you know,
  • 19:31 a well-placed--
  • 19:33 from Iran or Russia, but we are not really written into Bible
  • 19:37 prophecy, unless you read all nations or every people
  • 19:41 come together.
  • 19:42 We're not there.
  • 19:43 No young lions of Tarshish, you know, no eagles wings, we're
  • 19:46 not there, guys.
  • 19:47 Joshua: What it boils down to is it is time to repent.
  • 19:51 Don't wait until the atrocities and the horrors of what's going
  • 19:55 to happen in that time period.
  • 19:57 The Father wants you to be spared, and the only way that
  • 20:00 that can happen is for you to repent and accept Yeshua as
  • 20:03 the Messiah.

  • 20:26 Joshua: In speculating about the impending timeline of Gog and
  • 20:29 Magog one day, we often look to the most visceral enemy of
  • 20:32 Israel, which is Iran, but we don't often stop to look at the
  • 20:36 good that is happening in this country as well.
  • 20:39 Caleb: That's true, Dr. Hormoz Shariat of Iran Alive Ministries
  • 20:43 has long heralded the amazing power of God that is outpouring
  • 20:47 in that small country.
  • 20:49 God is doing wonders with the people of Iran and we want to
  • 20:51 tell you the good news about it now.
  • 20:55 Dr. Hormoz Shariat: Jewish brothers and Muslim background
  • 20:57 believers sitting together, that's prophetic, that's what
  • 21:02 the Bible says.
  • 21:03 Why I say it's prophetic, because you look in the Bible,
  • 21:05 and the past of Iran and Israel are tied together.
  • 21:08 You read that in the Old Testament with Iran and Cyrus
  • 21:13 setting the captives free.
  • 21:14 But the future also, when the Bible says I will set my throne
  • 21:19 in Jerusalem, but also in Ilam, which is completely inside the
  • 21:25 land of Iran in Jeremiah 49.
  • 21:27 So, what does it mean when he says I will set my throne in
  • 21:30 two places?
  • 21:31 It means I'm gonna--this is the end time.
  • 21:33 Iran and Israel will work together for the salvation of
  • 21:36 the world.
  • 21:38 That's what I see.
  • 21:39 Caleb: Well, that's interesting because Satan is using Iran
  • 21:42 right now to be a thorn in Israel's side.
  • 21:44 It's almost putting a target on his back, because God's gonna
  • 21:48 have to judge the nation that curses Israel, we know that.
  • 21:50 He will bless those who blesses the Jewish people, he will curse
  • 21:53 those who curse it.
  • 21:54 It's just the government we hear that hates the Jewish people.
  • 21:57 You said that the people of Iran don't have that animosity toward
  • 22:02 the Jewish people, is that correct?
  • 22:03 Dr. Hormoz Shariat: That's correct, are you ready to
  • 22:05 be shocked?
  • 22:06 Yes, okay, Iranians love Americans, they love the
  • 22:12 Jewish people.
  • 22:13 It's gone, the hatred that Islam imported into Iran and the
  • 22:18 government of Iran, the Islamic government of Iran is still
  • 22:21 holding on to that, but I talked to the people.
  • 22:24 You know, we have a 24/7 satellite broadcast, hundreds of
  • 22:27 people contact us every day.
  • 22:29 We know what people think.
  • 22:31 They don't hate Israel.
  • 22:33 Actually, you see these rallies, they are saying people
  • 22:39 protesting on the streets, they are saying why should we
  • 22:43 hate Israel?
  • 22:45 They haven't done nothing to us.
  • 22:48 You, the clergy, you're the ones who have made our
  • 22:51 lives miserable.
  • 22:52 We hate you, not them.
  • 22:54 And another point is that there's such a disconnect
  • 22:57 between the government of Iran and the people of Iran.
  • 22:59 When the government says death to Israel, the people say they
  • 23:03 must be good people.
  • 23:04 [all laughing]
  • 23:06 Caleb: They know there's something wrong here.
  • 23:09 Kirsten Hart: We're so appreciative for that interview
  • 23:11 and the additional insight, you guys have given me insight, and
  • 23:16 I'm not tooting my horn, I've been to Bible college, studied
  • 23:20 the Bible, and honestly, I never knew that Gog was a prince.
  • 23:26 I thought it was the battle of Gog and Magog, like, those are
  • 23:30 the northern, these countries, but I never realized that.
  • 23:33 And so, I'm appreciative for that, and your teaching,
  • 23:37 and that insight.
  • 23:38 Caleb: I mean, he's a spiritual principality, a fallen angel, if
  • 23:42 you will, and you see with this battle of Gog and Magog, it's
  • 23:47 really all there to bring the whole house of Israel to the
  • 23:50 knowledge of Yeshua.
  • 23:51 Because you have many Jews under the sun right now believing so
  • 23:54 many different religions, and they all have to believe in the
  • 23:56 God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, but Satan will use this
  • 24:00 as a catalyst to step in and become the great negotiation,
  • 24:03 bringing peace at the conclusion of a battle, even though Yeshua
  • 24:06 supernaturally saves him, he's gonna take credit for it.
  • 24:09 Kirsten Hart: It's a harsh way, though.
  • 24:11 It's not an easy, oh, that's a nice battle, this is,
  • 24:14 like, big time.
  • 24:15 This is really harsh, especially for the Jewish people.
  • 24:18 Joshua: It is very harsh, and we know that the great deceiver is
  • 24:20 gonna come on the scene, this Antichrist is going to literally
  • 24:24 deceive everybody, and when we look at 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12
  • 24:28 it says that, "The coming of the lawless one is according to the
  • 24:31 working of Satan, with all powers, and signs, and lying
  • 24:35 wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among
  • 24:38 those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the
  • 24:41 truth, that they might be saved.
  • 24:43 And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, and
  • 24:46 they should believe the lie, and they all may be condemned who
  • 24:49 did not believe the truth but had pleasure
  • 24:52 in unrighteousness."
  • 24:54 Caleb: It's interesting, guys, that no Antichrist
  • 24:56 would be successful on this earth if we would simply
  • 24:57 love the truth and righteousness.
  • 24:59 They would fail immediately, but our desire is for sin, and
  • 25:03 perversion, and things that are of the world, and that's why
  • 25:05 they gain a foothold in our lives.
  • 25:07 David: Isn't it easy to lean towards the lies sometimes
  • 25:11 for many of us?
  • 25:12 Joshua: It can be to give into to the flesh, and that's
  • 25:14 why we have to focus on the spirit.
  • 25:16 Matthew 24:24 says, "For false christs and false prophets will
  • 25:20 rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if it was
  • 25:23 possible, even the elect."
  • 25:25 The world's gonna be deceived, but thank God Yeshua comes.
  • 25:29 He has come to set us free from deception, delusion, we don't
  • 25:32 have to live through that.
  • 25:33 We can accept him now and receive our salvation before any
  • 25:36 of those horrors occur.
  • 25:37 Kirsten Hart: And that's why we are on the air.
  • 25:40 We hope that this program continues until that day, so
  • 25:44 that the good news can go to all the Jewish people, all the
  • 25:47 people that need him, need them in their lives.
